MONTREAL — Aquatech BM, a Quebec-based manufacturer of multifunctional industrial bottle washers, announces a total investment of $1.7 million, thanks to the support of Fondaction, the collaboration of Investissement Québec and a $300,000 repayable contribution from Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED). Since 2007, Aquatech BM has been trying to implement container recovery and disinfection systems. The funding announced will enable the company to pursue its commitment to sustainable development and the circular economy.

In the company of Soraya Martinez Ferrada, Minister of Tourism and Minister responsible for CED, Christopher Skeete, Minister for the Economy, Minister responsible for the Fight against Racism and Minister responsible for the Laval region, Pierre Graff, President of the Regroupement des jeunes chambres de commerce du Québec (RJCCQ), Sébastien Mondou of Investissement Québec and Tori Hellrung of Fondaction, the company unveiled its latest product, the compact multifunction bottle washer. This product will accommodate businesses with more modest washing capacities, or with space constraints to accommodate a standard bottle washer. It will also promote the use of reusable containers among SMEs, in a context of reform and expansion of the deposit system.

In collaboration with the Regroupement des jeunes chambres de commerce du Québec (RJCCQ), the event was also an opportunity to highlight the dynamism of the new generation of Quebec entrepreneurs.

Working in several sectors, including the brewing, wine, food, hospitality, dairy, pharmaceutical and research laboratory industries, Aquatech BM aims in the short term to develop green partnerships with certain sectors of Quebec industry impacted by the reform and expansion of the deposit system, such as microbreweries, and to pursue its international expansion.

“We have excellent growth opportunities in Quebec, Canada and around the world because environmental considerations and the circular economy concept are becoming increasingly popular in the business community. This is great news for our company and for the green economy of tomorrow,” said Félix Bégin, President, Aquatech BM.
